A retired dentist and ardent animal lover is offering $20,000 to anyone who can bring back his missing cats that have mysteriously disappeared during the last year.
According to a full page advertisement in the Sun Sentinel, the cats disappeared from an adjacent parking lot of Steve Rosen’s property located in Davie. He states his cats were stolen one by one, in the time frame ranging from March 2015 to February of this year. At one point he installed a surveillance camera and even hired a private detective, but has had no luck in finding the responsible person(s).
According to NbcMiami, Rosen stated:
“The last straw effort was to try and put an ad in the Sun Sentinel with a $20,000 reward to see if I can get someone to flush out and let me know what’s going on. They’re like my children. Imagine one of your children disappear and then another one disappears. Granted, I know they’re not human beings, a lot of people can’t relate to it but those of us in animal rescue world know what I mean.”
Rosen, 62 and a local well-known businessman, made national news in 2002, when Miami International Airport had been building a new runway. As with all development in the modern world, wild animals are pushed out of their natural habitats, and in this case 500 black tailed jack rabbits had been living in the woods. The airport personnel had planned on killing the rabbits, however Rosen paid for the rescue of all the animals and paid for them to go to a sanctuary.
Now Rosen is hoping “greed” will bring back his cats. He has had several inquiries, but no solid leads as of this time. Follow the National Pet Rescue Examiner on Facebook.
